Paprika Pasta Soup

A brightly coloured soup that works well as a lunch or as an opening course for a larger meal. The texture of the final result can by varied with the use of a different kind of pasta.


  • 1 medium size Yellow Pepper
  • 1 medium size Green Pepper
  • 1 small Brown Onion,
  • 1 medium Carrot
  • 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp chopped Garlic
  • Handful of Pasta pieces
  • Vegetable Stock Cube
  • 1-2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Puree
  • ½-1 tsp Paprika Powder
  • Ground Black Pepper


  1. Deseed and chop the peppers.
  2. Peel and chop the onion.
  3. Scrape the carrot and slice thinly.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a wok (my preference) or a large pan.
  5. Add the pepper, carrot and onion to the heated oil. Stir well to mix then continue to fry for a few minutes until they begin to soften.
  6. Mix the soy sauce and garlic into the pan. Continue to fry until until the veggies have softened and the soy has been absorbed.
  7. Add the paprika and then grate in black pepper to taste.
  8. Spoon in the tomato puree and mix so everything gets coated.
  9. Pour in around 500ml/20fl oz of water plus 1 or 2 stock cubes.
  10. Add the pasta and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover and cook for around 10 minutes. Stir occasionally and add a little more water if it is getting too dry.
  11. Add salt to taste
  12. Great served alone although some crusty bread would be a good addition.


Depending on how you prepare this, it may come out as more of a stew than a soup. That was exactly what happened with the version pictured. No complaints when it was eaten because it tasted great.
